Keeping Them Guessing, Shetland November 2016

It wasn't quite an out-of-office message - but it was my twitter equivalent as I arrived on Shetland at the weekend.

If anyone wants me, I'll be on the beach

Nicely ambiguous.  There are a lot of beaches at the south end of Shetland, and even on a short trip (with some dodgy weather) I managed to walk quite a lot of them.

West Voe Beach
Quendale Beach
Scord Beach
St Ninian's Beach (northside)
St Ninian's Beach (southside)
Spiggie Beach
And just to keep the variety up, I also spent quite a lot of time on Scat Ness too in both mild and wild weather.

Scat Ness - mild
Scat Ness - wild
Quite a good record, since I was only on Shetland for about 20 daylight hours this time.

On Show. November 2016

I’m going to be showing photographs at a number of events over the next few weeks.

If you're in Oxford over the next couple of months you’ll be able to see some of my pictures (alongside other Arctic-related artworks) at the Oxford Museum of Natural History.

Artweek Arctic is open from 11th November until 29th January 2017.

I’m also going to be giving a talk (about polar bears) at the Museum on the evening of Monday 5th December

I’ll be open for Oxford Christmas Artweeks – from midday-6PM on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th November at 34 Stile Road, Headington, Oxford, OX3 8AQ

And finally (at the moment) I’ll be at St Andrews School Headington, Oxford OX3 9ED for their annual craft fair on Sunday 4th December.
